The Retreat

Widemouth Bay, CornwallSleeps: 8Bedrooms: 4Bathrooms: 2

Home > Our Properties > The Retreat
A coastal dream in the heart of Widemouth Bay, The Retreat is a haven of contemporary design just a short walk from the beach.

Located just 400 yards from the family-friendly beach at Widemouth Bay, escape the stresses of everyday life at The Retreat. With elegant interiors by Iroka Design, this aptly named beach house offers a tranquil base for exploring North Cornwall, and was recently featured in Elle UK, loved for its contemporary design and dramatic coastal backdrop.

The stylish open plan kitchen and dining room provides the perfect social space for the whole family. Welcome the summer breeze by sliding open the patio doors and watch the children and dogs play in the enclosed two-tiered garden on sunny afternoons.

After a busy day exploring, fire up the barbeque or enjoy an al fresco feast against a sunset backdrop. When night falls, sink into the enormous sofas in the sitting room for a movie marathon on the impressive 49-inch Smart TV, or while away the hours in front of the cosy wood burner with storytelling and games. Soothing blue hues and soft wood accents throughout will have you feeling relaxed and ready to drift off upstairs.

Awake recharged from a restful night’s sleep in one of the four luxurious bedrooms, all equipped with 32-inch Smart TVs. The master bedroom benefits from a sumptuous super king bed and indulgent en-suite, whilst the three remaining bedrooms utilise the family bathroom, with two out of the three bedrooms enjoying the versatility of zip and link beds. 

With Widemouth Bay on your doorstep and the bustling town of Bude just down the road, there is plenty to see, do and eat without needing to travel far. Soak up the surf on one of the many local beaches or head down the South West Coast Path to The Beach at Bude restaurant for dinner and cocktails on the sun terrace.

Take a stroll along the pretty historic Bude canal, spot the abundant wildlife and the hive of activity on the water before indulging in a classic Cornish cream tea at the Trelawney Tearoom.

Widemouth Bay

Outdoor pursuits

Enjoy an action-packed day of family activities with surf or coasteering lessons from Freewave Surf Academy and OA Surf School at Widemouth Bay, or visit the Bude Sea Pool for an afternoon of open-air swimming.

If you’re looking for a walking route, join the coast path from Widemouth Bay and follow the footpath through blooming fields until you reach Bude Canal. For something more strenuous, embark on the walk to Crackington Haven, where clifftop paths offer widespread views over the Atlantic.

Children will love visiting The Milky Way Adventure Park or Bude Segway for a fun-filled day on the rollercoaster or climbing wall, while adults can take advantage of nearby Bude’s year-round events, including the jazz, food and folk festivals.

Beaches and watersports

Bude is nestled in between several beaches, each with their own distinct character and charm. Backed by rugged cliffs, Widemouth Bay is great for novice surfers and safe for families, especially with the nearby selection of shops and cafés. Spanning over one and a half miles, the beach is split into two halves: the southern Black Rock, which is dog-friendly all year round, and the northern end, which enforces a seasonal dog ban.

Another popular beach in Bude, Summerleaze is backed by an open air sea pool with a large expanse of sand at low tide and the ever popular Life’s a Beach café. 
 

Food and drink

Bude is home to many beach cafés, cosy coffee shops, gastro pubs and farmhouse tea rooms, offering an option for every occasion. With stunning sea views, the popular Bay View Inn overlooks Widemouth Bay and offers a great local menu.

Beautiful at sunset, relax on the warming terrace at The Beach at Bude and soak up the views over Summerleaze. If you venture slightly further afield, treat yourself to a dining experience at Nathan Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen in Port Isaac, renowned for some of the freshest seafood in the county.  
 

Time for pampering

Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion with friends or family, finding time to recharge is an essential part of any holiday. Awaken your senses with one of the treatments on offer at The W Club in Bude and finish the day with a bite to eat on the terrace.

For ultimate bliss, let our concierge team bring the spa straight to your doorstep. Perfect for a luxury treat before evening celebrations, lie back and relax as the in-house therapists work their magic. 

InclusiveConcierge

From the moment of booking one of our luxury holiday homes, our bespoke concierge service is provided at no additional cost.

With extensive insider knowledge and local expertise, our team can arrange anything from private chefs to one-to-one surf tuition and in-house spa therapists. We’re also on hand to help plan special occasions and events, whether you’d like a locally sourced cake or pre-arranged flower deliveries.

Just returning from a wonderful week at The Retreat. The house is lovely and very spacious and has everything you need, the kitchen and utility room is very well equipped. Great sized garden too which our dog liked. Beds were extremely comfortable with great quality linen, we all slept so well! Showers excellent! We chose this house for the location and it did not disappoint, within a five minute walk you are on the beach. Would certainly like to return. Overall a fantastic holiday!

The Sefton Family, Orpington | Trustpilot - August 2021

Stayed at The Retreat in August 2021 for a family holiday. The house was exactly as described and probably the most well equipped house we've stayed in over the years. We would definitely stay there again. The administration side of things by Perfect Stays was very efficient with plenty of information provided in good time - we also made use of their included concierge service which again was really efficient and helpful. In summary excellent all round.

The Hart Family, Great Malvern | Trustpilot - September 2021

Just returning from a wonderful week at The Retreat. The house is lovely and very spacious and has everything you need, the kitchen and utility room is very well equipped. Great sized garden too which our dog liked. Beds were extremely comfortable with great quality linen, we all slept so well! Showers excellent! We chose this house for the location and it did not disappoint, within a five minute walk you are on the beach. Would certainly like to return. Overall a fantastic holiday!

The Sefton Family, Orpington | Trustpilot - August 2021

Stayed at The Retreat in August 2021 for a family holiday. The house was exactly as described and probably the most well equipped house we've stayed in over the years. We would definitely stay there again. The administration side of things by Perfect Stays was very efficient with plenty of information provided in good time - we also made use of their included concierge service which again was really efficient and helpful. In summary excellent all round.
